The Texas Master Gardener Program
Who are Texas Master Gardeners?
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.
What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Extension office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.
Who are the Somervell County Master Gardeners?
The Master Gardeners of Somervell County (SCMG) are volunteers who work with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to improve gardening skills throughout the community. Program objectives are implemented through the training of local volunteers known as Master Gardeners. We collaborate with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to provide community education and maintain demonstration gardens at the Extension Office and Paluxy Heritage Park.
Become a Master Gardener!
We have trainings every 2 years, held jointly with Somervell, Hood, and Johnson Counties. Our next training will be in the Spring of 2023, but you don’t need to wait to become involved with the Master Gardeners! If you are interested in the SCMGA, we would like to invite and encourage you to visit one of our monthly meetings, so that you might learn more about our various projects and activities. We meet the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am at the Somervell County Extension Office. We’d love to have you join us. For further information, contact the Somervell County Extension office at (254) 897-2809.
